Although Rose isn’t the top scorer, or even the league leader in assist, he still has the stats to back up his phenomenal play throughout this season. Rose is seventh among all players in points per game and first among point guards with 24.5. He is also top ten among all point guards in assist with 8 assist per game and is third among all point guards in rebounds per game with 4.5.
Another great stat by Rose is the fact that he is sixth, according to NBA.com, in the combined stat of points plus rebounds plus assist per game with a 37.0 average, highest among all guards.
Whats most impressive and why he deserves serious consideration for the MVP running is that this season Rose has made or assisted on 44 percent of his teams field goals this season. This shows that Rose has been a complete team player for the Chicago Bulls.
